(MENAFN - The Peninsula) Hamad Medical Corporation has announced a plan to launch the Hamad Healthcare Quality Institute in Qatar.

The new institute will focus on healthcare improvement in Qatar, working closely with the Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI) - the leading organisation for healthcare improvement worldwide.

The announcement was made during day two of the second Middle East Forum on Quality and Safety in Healthcare. The forum is the leading conference on healthcare improvement in the Middle East and is visited by healthcare experts from across the globe.

The Hamad Healthcare Quality Institute builds on Hamad's partnership with the IHI in helping to share international best practice tools and methodologies, focusing on patient safety and reviewing how teams can work together to improve the quality of care. It will cement HMC's position at the forefront of healthcare improvement in Qatar and will build upon work which is already under way by Hamad's Centre for Healthcare Improvement (CHI) and other teams which are proactively working to improve the quality of care across the organisation.

The Hamad Healthcare Quality Institute will include a number of divisions spanning a range of priority areas in the healthcare improvement field. These will include: Health research, innovation and improvement, implementation and knowledge transfer and education.

These plans to establish new services and solutions highlight HMC's continued commitment to its patients and its ongoing leadership and vision in the field of healthcare improvement of Qatar.

This was demonstrated yesterday when HMC Managing Director Dr Hanan Al Kuwari and President and CEO for the Institute for Healthcare Improvement, Maureen Bisognano, signed a memorandum of understanding paving the way for the establishment of the new institute during the Middle East Forum.

"Hamad Medical Corporation is leading the way in healthcare improvement across Qatar and the Hamad Healthcare Quality Institute will continue to progress our mission of providing world class healthcare. We are delighted to be playing such a major role in innovation and safety in healthcare," said Al Kuwari.
